Mr. Sandler spoke to USA Today in the wake of the long-awaited Supreme Court ruling in the matter of Citizens United vs. FEC about  the implications that the decision would have in terms of partisan advantage.  Mr. Sandler told Fredreka Schouten and Joan Biskupic that “the ruling created no partisan advantage because it frees Democrat-allied unions to tap their treasuries.”  Read the full article here.

Mr. Sandler also told Newser, “They’re going to be getting hammered much closer to Election Day on the air. That will make it tougher to cast tough votes,” about the potential for a proliferation of negative campaign ads aimed to coerce legislators into voting for or against a certain issue.

Mr. Sandler echoed this sentiment to the National Journal.
